    We are facing an IE11 Problem regarding HTMLB elements used in a BSP Application. There are currently These two symptoms:

    The datepicker can be opened but does not Close after having picked a date.

    The radiobutton Group does not work as expected as two radiobuttons of the same Group can both be selected.

    Is there any particular rendering problem for HTMLB in IE11? We are using Kernel Release 742.


    Kind regards



    1. Dear Vanessa,

      Thanks for writing your queries to us.

      I haven't encountered such issues before from any customer:

      Hence, I would like to know the following from you:

      • The WEBCUIF Level of your system.
      • Are these issues replicable when parameter 'WCF_IGNORE_ENHANCEMT' is set to 'A' in transaction su3.
      • Are these issues replicable for Standard SAP Business Roles as well ?
      • Are these issues occurring only in IE 11 browser or other browsers as well ?
      • Are these issues occurring for All Skins or only a particular Skin ?

      Best Regards,

  4. Hi Varun,


    this is really a good blog for IE11 issues.

    we have an issues in IE11.  we are in 7.0 ehp1 - Interaction center where this version is compatible for IE8.  Our client recently upgraded to Windows 7 64bit with IE11 since MS stopped supporting XP and IE8. 

    starting in IE it was fine and recently after couple of weeks our agents started reporting several issues like when they are in call applicaiton is freezing for siometime and they have to refresh the screen to continue with call. 

    2. IC toolbar buttons not working for some agents like transfer/warm transfer, whereas if they log in different system its fine. 

    3. print preview of Service Request not working, its opening in pop up but nothing is displayed. today only reported and am looking into it not sure its because of IE11 or not.

    4. sometimes pop up is not opening when they trying to attached any file in email using browse.


    we also started observing when launching application directly from gui (wui/CRM_UI) it says you are trying to launch in browser where it is not supported. 


    can you please suggest any settings need to set in IE11 for our application to work without any browser issues. (smile)

    appreciate your help.


    thanks much in advance!.

    Hi Varun,

    We are currently using EIC in ERP not CRM, but are getting issues similar to those above, EIC is freezing, text within emails is not displaying etc. Our main issue is the freezing and how slow EIC has become. Are there any notes for these issues, we have tried applying notes 1924514 and 2202772 but this did not rectify the issue. Could this be an issue with browser compatibility settings?

    Thanks in advance.


    1. Former Member

      Hi David,

      we opened an oss call and SAP provided the following hint, which solved our problem:

      • change the application to use the newer Design2008
      • Before adjusting it, activate the "bsp" service in SICF (see SAPNote 2082238 - Inactive Design2008 service in SICF)

      Hope this helps,


      1. Former Member

        Hi Vanessa,

        The HREIC application transaction is hardcoded with the DESIGN2003 format. So this standard transaction cannot be modified to use the newer DESIGN2008.Also,we don't see any notes which says that SAP has started using the DESIGN2008 for the HREIC transaction.

    Thanks a lot Vanessa, we will try that!

    Hi Varun,

    Thanks so much for compiling the information in one place and its on top of my CRM bookmarks.

    I have a strange problem and am not sure if its related to our IE11 or to a new Skin and wanted to see if you have seen this before.

    I installed OSS Note 2227135 and its related fixes and it works perfectly in IE11 browser as standalone with Blue Crystal theme in CRM Web UI.

    The only setting from 2227135 which was not implemented is selecting the skin as Pictogram which was not available in my CRM 7 EHP2 system.

    I now test the Blue Crystal CRM WebUI Skin using Enterprise Portal Tight Integration and Home Screen and Search Screen now are misaligned e.g. My Appointments Today, My Open Tasks, etc is now overlapped by the Results of the same on the Home Screen. 

    I verified using Chrome and Enterprise Portal Tight Integration and the CRM screens in Blue Crystal Skin render perfectly without any issues.

    I hope you can provide some pointers on this scenario.

    I cannot seem to get these links working. I am having an issue with drop down menus... the information I think I need is listed below, but the link is broken...

    In IE11, Popups Invoked from a Popup are empty. 

    Solution: Please refer to SAP KBA 2117026 - The content of a popup is not shown when opened within a Popup in Internet Explorer 11 to resolve this issue.

    1. Former Member

      Hi Josh,

      The links point to a SAP internal system (CSS) for employees where OSS Notes are developed and External folks like us don't have access.

      The note numbers are still valid and you can always go to and open it from there.

      You would require and S-user to access this function and your SAP Basis team can provide you with the same.



      1. Former Member


        So, without S-user access I have no way to view the information in this note? We do not directly support SAP in house. The company we work with for SAP has not been able to provide the answer to this issue yet, so I was working on it personally.

        thanks for your help,

    Hi Josh,

    I cannot attach the PDF version here since don't have Admin permission but here is the text.


    In Internet Explorer 11, when a second popup is opened within a popup, the second popup appears Blank.


    • SAP enhancement package 1 for SAP CRM 7.0
    • SAP enhancement package 2 for SAP CRM 7.0
    • SAP enhancement package 3 for SAP CRM 7.0
    • SAP enhancement package 2 for SAP CRM 7.0, version for SAP HANA

    Reproducing the Issue

    1. Launch the WebUI.

    2. Select any Business Role For eg: SALESPRO

    3. Search for Accounts

    4. From the result list, open any account.

    5. Open the F4 Search Help for any field.

    6. Now open the Input help for the field within that F4 Help or click on the Personalize button.

    7. The resulting Popup will be blank.




     This to due to an IE 11 bug w.r.t modal popups.


    This issue can been solved by this patch:

    Hi Varun

    We have developed an application in SAP that uses a web browser for the user interface. At present, we can use Google Chrome but when we use IE 11, we only get a static page and some of the data is not even displayed. This is on ECC6 EHP5. IE 11 is our standard and we would prefer not to use Google Chrome.

    Does anybody know how to enable IE 11?


    1. Hi Henry,

      Could you please let me know which application are you referring to here ?


      Best Regards, Varun

  16. Hi,

    We are on ECC 6.0 with EHP 5, IE11. When using ESS I have noticed that the font looks weird - for example, w's have spaces after them, while i's are scrunched up next to the adjacent letter (other letters have similar issues). It is literally uncomfortable to read the page because of the font/spacing issues. Is there a note addressing this?

  17. Hi,


    There is a mysterious error in the CRM_UI, which is occur only in

    specific circumstances. The symptoms are "F4 list" function does not

    work (popup window hangs in an endles cycle) and EXIT function is not

    work also.

    The errors can only be seen if two conditions are met (both)!!!

    1. SAP Web Dispatcher Access. In case of a direct access of AS, there

    is no error.

    2. Few specific usernames. Other users with the same settings

    (authorizations, parameters, customizing) with different name are

    working fine.

    I am getting blank page after confirming the BP in Interaction centre.

    While confirming we are calling ECC RFC to fetch a list of records, so at that time we are getting blank page.

    Only few users are facing this issue that too after ECC upgrade.

    I am not able to replicate this issue in development client. We are facing this issue only in production.

  20. Hi Community,

     We use the SAP CRM WebUI. We have a Drop-Down-List with different Content. The Content is sorted.

    Since a few days we rolled out IE11. Now the sorting didn't work anymore.

    If I open the WebUI in Firefox 26 it works fine.

     I've searched for SAP Notes, implemented all of them. However no results.

     Has anyone an idea?

     Thanks for any reply.

    Hi Varun,

    Do you have any recommendation for performance issues? we have been facing ic web performance issues lately, we are utility client on ehp3.




    1. Please try following SAP Notes: 


      It helped us. Those SNotes deal with errors of the delta handling when using IE11. As the delta handling (reduces the amount of data send between server and client) is an important piece of the application.

    We have an issue with incorrect inserting value into table cell. We copy email address and paste it into email details for Consumer in Web IC. It is automatically get duplicate value.
